7. New frontend

The new frontend gwdu103 has 2×12 Intel Broadwell CPUs and 64 GB memory. If you compile a program on gwdu103 it will often be automatically optimized for Broadwell CPUs / intel=4. In that case it will probably also run on intel=3 / Haswell, but not below that or on AMD nodes.

The same policies apply as for all other frontends: You may use it to compile software, to copy from and to the new scratch-Filesystem, and for short tests of your compiled binaries. You must not use it to run long time tasks, especially if they are CPU or memory intensive.
